Office Hours

If you would like to visit Different Directions please make an appointment through the Contact us form at the bottom of this page.

Most of our teachers and organizers are homeschooling parents with families, and our evenings and weekends are spent with our families.  All inquiries and messages sent to teachers and organizers will be answered as soon as possible within 72 hours of receipt of the communication.

Refund Policy: There are no refunds for students who withdraw  after the term begins, or are asked to leave a class for breaking our behavior policy.  Teachers base their expenses on the number of students they have at the beginning of the term.  All teachers and organizers at Different Directions are responsible for their own expenses including space fee, assistant fees and supplies. Once a class has begun, the money paid to the teacher has been distributed to space, assistants (if needed) and materials. They have paid these non refundable fees under the agreement that your child will be in attendance for the term. Once the term has begun the spot your child holds cannot be replaced. 

Drop in Classes: There is a $35 fee to be paid directly to the teacher for sitting in on a class. Class observations are at the discretion of the teacher.  Not all classes are open for visiting. If you would like to observe a class at Different Directions you must contact the teacher via the inquiry button on the class page and wait for the teacher to set up an observation appointment. We are not prepared for drop in visitors at our studio.  Thank you for respecting the privacy and safety of our children.
